Parent Portal

Denver Public Schools (DPS) offers parents the Parent Portal, a program that allows you to access accurate, current, and confidential information about your child’s school attendance, grades, class assignments, and more. Please see the attachments below for the Parent Portal Agreement, which must be signed in front of a school staff member to be valid, and a quick reference guide from DPS. Please contact the Parent Portal Hotline with questions: 720-423-3163.

Note that the Parent Portal is separate from the Student Portal, which allows students to access their own information. Students may contact their Deans with questions or if in need of assistance. Learn more about the Parent/Student Portal by downloading the Parent Toolkit: English, Español. The Portal Team has also coordinated a variety of training resources for parents/guardians. Please visit their website for additional resources.
